Today was a Waste Day. Kids are continuing to build. I love the movement, the energy, the intensity. Kids making, failing, finding what they need, planning, designing, creating. It was magical.

Friday was a waste project day. We are at the point where students are planning and building their projects to reduce waste in their home, school, or community.

Mr. Hayes and I have begun our water robot after school program. In February there will be a competition where students will have tasks that their robot will have to perform. Today we started planning. We split up into three groups. One working on a camera. One working on a body design. One working on a claw.

We took over the library today to present our Waste Project Infographics. A great big thanks To Mrs. Tumminello and Mrs. Wells. Mrs. T offered up her space and Mrs. Wells offered up her class as an audience for my students to present. The great part is that her class is also my class so students were able to share ideas with each other.
Pictures, words and our voices, Oh My!
